By now just about everyone is familiar with the vivacious vixens of the Kardashian clan (sisters Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim), but Kim did it first and did it best in the arena of celebrity socialites. It all started with outings with gal-pal heiress Paris Hilton. Then there was a sex tape. And now the bootylicious babe behind the hype has her own reality show. But while she’s ahead of her sisters professionally, she seems to be trailing on the personal front. Khloe married basketball star Lamar Odom back in 2009, and Kourtney may or may not be engaged to longtime boyfriend Scott Disick – she denied it via Twitter, but rumors continue to circulate (like it matters…they already have a baby). So we’re back to Kim, who is currently connected romantically to New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humprhies.
It is rumored (there’s always an anonymous source, isn’t there?) that Kim plans to move to New York City before the basketball season starts in October so that she can remain close to her boyfriend of five months. If there’s any truth to this tale, the next obvious question is: when are we going to see a rock on that perfectly manicured ring-finger? According to another source (sigh…also anonymous) the engagement is imminent, and may even be announced as early as this summer, before she makes the cross-country move. This could be just so much grist for the rumor mill, but let’s not let that stop us from a little idle speculation, such as: what kind of ring is Kim likely to receive from her baller beau?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and wager that she’s sporting something in the neighborhood of 3 carats before summer is out. Flawless, nearly colorless, and prominently displayed are my personal predictions. Why only 3 carats, you ask? Despite Kim’s glamorous life, she is notoriously scant on blingy embellishments, preferring one or two key pieces to loads of accessories. And understated is the only way to describe her selection of accouterments (not that she needs them to dazzle, with her exotic looks and gorgeous bod). However, she is definitely about the quality, so even if the stone is smaller than expected, it’s going to be expensive.
